A school looks more colourful than ever after Tesco volunteers opted in to give it a lick of paint.

Community champion for Tesco Gallows Corner Angie Brown along with her team of volunteers were determined to brighten up Harrow Lodge Primary School, Rainsford Way, Hornchurch.

She said: “It is a huge school and it looked like concrete city - the school had no colour and was grey and dowdy.

“I was more than happy to help inject some life and colour into the place.”

The volunteers painted a 250ft fence with the new school colours, four benches in the Tesco colours, donated and decorated a rubbish bin and painted a friendship bench designed by a pupil.

Headteacher Una Connolly said: “Our parents, children and staff are very appreciative of the hard work and skill of all the people involved in this amazing project.

“Thank you to all staff and volunteers at Tesco for giving up their time to improve the look of our school, we love it!”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
